Dreier Selected as Rules Committee Chair for 112th Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman David Dreier (R-CA), Rules Committee Ranking Republican, issued the following statement today regarding his selection as House Rules Committee Chairman for the 112th Congress:

“Under a new Majority, the 112th Congress will be managed differently than any Congress before it and I am honored to be a part of Speaker-designate Boehner’s leadership team. The Rules Committee will be responsible for implementing and maintaining a commitment to the reforms that the new Republican Majority has pledged to put in place. We need to make the House more transparent and accountable to the American people. We also need to reform the rules and operations of the House to ensure that they encourage spending reductions and economic growth. Tremendous challenges lie ahead. An impressive and dedicated group of new members will help us achieve these goals.”
